Mallorca Spring 2022

A small number of us made it to Mallorca at the beginning of May, rather fewer than the usual 20+.  For most of us, it was our first adventure outside the UK since Covid and since leaving the EU and I left home with some trepidation.  It all proved to be very straightforward; my Scottish Covid pass worked, I got my passport stamped in and out, I wore a mask as required on public transport, and I didn’t catch Covid.

Mallorca is very much open for holidaying, though still a bit quieter than usual.  Our regular hotel was not completely full once the Mallorca 312 cycle race crowd had left.  We enjoyed the usual hospitality, warm sunshine, good roads and a bit of rain.  The wild flowers were very good.

The walkers, one still recovering from a bout of Covid, took things fairly steadily, exploring Palma and the area around Soller, including the historic narrow-gauge railway and the tram system.  The most intrepid of the cyclists clocked up 510 miles and 7176 m of ascent.

The discount codes are valid for the rest of the season, and hopefully others will take advantage of them.  There’s no need to be heroic – the hotel has a pool and a bar if you are feeling very lazy.
